Humanities and Social Sciences are all about the study of people, society and culture.
If you want to gain a detailed understanding of human nature and what it means for our world, along with a whole host of transferable skills, then these are the subjects for you!
Studying Humanities and Social Sciences subjects encourages you to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and can help provide a route to university.
Charlie Avis studied A Levels in Geography, Maths and Physics, as well as a PE Diploma during his time at HSDC Havant (previously Havant College) back in 1985, and through these early career-defining decisions his options were opened up to a number of different universities and endless future options.
Now with his career well established, Charlie works as a UN Officer in the United Nations Environment Programme in Geneva, Switzerland.
Reflecting on his time at the former Havant College, Charlie said:
“Havant helped me get three solid A Level passes which basically then gave me my choice of any university.
“This paved the way for me to follow my passion for the environment and, luckily, I’ve been fortunate enough to work in that sector ever since.”
The teaching and support was absolutely brilliant, they couldn’t have done anything more or anything better, if I had any questions my lecturers would always stay behind to help me if I needed it and their emails were always open, it was second to none. This college is the best by far.Amber Searle, BTEC student
The tutors were really supportive and it was all thanks to them that I have achieved what I have. I’ve also made loads of great friends and really enjoyed my time at the college.Lizaveta Sinkerich, A Level student
“HSDC provided me with the opportunity for autonomous study and the choice of subjects that I wanted to study, which helped me develop relevant knowledge as well as relevant skills for the workplace.”Lucas Ratcliffe, A Level and CTEC student
